Siemens Scalance WLAN devices

Thursday, 19 September, 2013 | Supplied by: Siemens Ltd



The latest WLAN components from the Siemens Industry Automation division offer a data rate of up to 450 Mbps, allowing larger amounts of data to be transferred securely and quickly - making them suitable for applications with video, visualisation or voice data.

With the use of multiple input multiple output (MIMO) technology and three antennas per wireless interface, these devices can achieve long ranges and a highly robust wireless communication. As a result, these components are suitable for both wireless communication in an automation environment as well as industry areas such as logistics, airports, roads and underground railway tunnels or crane systems. Typical applications for wireless data transmission via IWLAN are the monitoring of safety-critical areas for the protection of persons or the monitoring of processing and storage procedures in high-bay storage systems.

The access points are available in three versions, suitable for outdoor use (SCALANCE W786), indoor use (SCALANCE W788) and stationary or mobile devices with ethernet capability (SCALANCE W748).

In addition, the IWLAN controller SCALANCE WLC711 allows central configuration and monitoring of up to 32 access points and client modules. A controller-based wireless network solution reduces effort and costs during commissioning and operation of larger IWLAN installations. With parallel operation of two SCALANCE WLC711 IWLAN controllers, the availability of the communication network can be increased.
